it's time for another pink saturday hosted by beverly. the picture below is so strange. my japanese magnolia is blooming again. this tree usually blooms only once a year during february. this happened after katrina too. my mom says that it's because the weather shocks the plants. i like to think it's God giving us some beauty and hope through the earth.
it's a beautiful tree.
although these are not pink, i had one petunia and one impatiens flower bloom too. these plants were almost dead. so odd and so lovely.

hope you all have a lovely pink week and find some love and sweetness through the earth. take care.

Happy Pink Saturday, Sue.

What a gorgeous bloom. I believe God always gives us reason to hope. We are all so blessed.

Your magnolia is breathtaking. We don't have that in Kansas(and they certainly wouldn't bloom in february if we did!) Take care.

I've always loved magnolias. We can't grow a magnolia tree out here in West Texas very well..so hot and windy.
Thanks for sharing...

Happy Pink Saturday. I have an ornamental magnolia too that blooms in early Spring just like yours. Then it will throw out an occasional bloom all summer.

Happy Pink Saturday, Sue. I love the magnolia blooms. The impatience and petunia blooms are a pleasant surprise. I have a few impatience plants that seemed to appear from no where. I love the knitted hat that you made for your niece. The look on your grandson's face is delightful.

Beautiful tree and flowers.

I saw your lovely blue "boot"....been there, done that...ugh. Hope it feels better soon.

Your storm post sounded very harrowing. Glad that you are all safe!

Take Care,

Sue, your Japanese magnolia is gorgeous. It is the most delicate color of pink. I know how special it is to see a bloom that comes up when it shouldn't. I would show it too.

Hugs, Jeanne

Hello Sue, When I first saw the picture of your blooming Japanese Magnolia before reading anything, I thought where in the world are they that this is blooming today. Then I read your blog, how wonderful for that to bloom now! After all that devastation, God must be telling you he loves you.
Love, Ann

We had a Magnolia tree in our front yard for years. It grew about an inch a year... Maybe a little more, but it was the slowest growing tree in history. I was always so jealous of the breathtaking Magnolias @ the Japanese Gardens in Fort Worth. I think I had the Charlie Brown tree of the Magnolia world!
